10 cool Bluetooth devices for iPhone or Android

It's an odd thought: peripherals for your smartphone, which itself is often considered a peripheral to your computer. But as mobile devices become computing devices in their own right, a cornucopia of peripherals is emerging.

You've no doubt seen Bluetooth headsets, heart monitors, fitness trackers, blood pressure monitors, and smart watches -- the usual suspects. But you've not likely seen the 10 peripherals showcased here. They show just how far the smartphone-centered Internet of things will go.
